Background: Research studies regarding nurses’ knowledge attitudes and practice in the older adult are limited.
Furthermore, none of these studies attempted to investigate the relationship between knowledge attitudes and
practice. Furthermore, little studies compared nurses’ knowledge, attitudes and practice between Eastern and
Aim: To describe the factors associated with nurses’ acute pain management practice in the context of caring for
older adult patients.
Method: A quantitative, correlational, comparative and cross-sectional survey approach.
Data collection: Data were collected using survey questionnaire.
Sample: A sample of 267 registered nurses from Ireland and Jordan (one private hospital in each country).
Results: A multiple linear regression analysis revealed that nurses’ general knowledge and attitude towards pain
management was associated with their pain management practice, with a regression coefficient of 0.14 (p =
0.002). However, knowledge of pain in the elderly failed to reach a statistically significant relationship with pain
management practice. In regards to country and gender, Irish nurses had an average score that was 2.61 points
higher than Jordanian nurses (p < 0.001), female nurses had an average score that was 0.67 points higher than
male nurses (p = 0.025). The overall regression model was significant (p < 0.001) with an R2 value of 43.2%,
indicating that 43.2% of the variation in scores was explained by knowledge, attitude and practice.
Conclusion: More research studies combining the three concepts (knowledge, attitude and practice) are recom-
mended in the area of pain management.
